The tool is currently designed to simulate Tang’s comb-drive. All the inputs such as geometric size, material properties, actuation information are parameters transparent to users.

There are two different simulations can be done: static analysis and (up to two parameters) sweep analysis.

In the static analysis, the original and actuated 3D model pictures are provided. A table of all the deflection value of the center point as well as the netlist used to created the model in SUGAR are also downloaded.

In the sweep test, a family of sweeping curves is plotted and all the numerical values are offered as a text file.


This tool is based on the work of LI, Fengyuan (Thomas) and CLARK, Jason.
